Christliness has always been an element of the Superman myth. But this film's near literal insistence upon it becomes absurd since director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer don't dramatize the analogy, they presume it.

The movie consists of endless declamation, endless violence.
June 14, 2013
There's very little humor or joy in this Superman story.
June 14, 2013
There's plenty to like in Snyder's hectic, rowdy film. But by the time we reach the bludgeoning excesses of the last half-hour it's hard to shake the sense that this was an opportunity at least partially missed.

Cavill broods handsomely as Superman, but this reboot skimps on fun and romance.
June 14, 2013
The movie delivers on the promise of its title and then some.
June 14, 2013
Man of Steel packs quite a wallop. A few too many wallops, as it turns out.
June 14, 2013
The chief problem here is one of rhythm and balance in the storytelling and directing. The movie swings between destructive overstatement and flat-footed homilies.
June 13, 2013
It all gets exhaustingly bombastic although, sequence by sequence, Man of Steel is something worth seeing.
June 13, 2013
The mechanical storytelling swamps a first-rate cast.
